My latest book is my ‘Writer’s Guide to Editing Fiction’ which will be available as a paperback (on CreateSpace, link awaited) and eBook (Amazon link awaited etc.) in the next couple of days, but it’s already available as an eBook on Smashwords and I’m thrilled.
I’ve taken much of the feedback I’ve given my editing clients over the last nine years and put it in this book. Will this mean that you don’t need an editor? Sadly not, but whoever you use (I’d gladly help you and offer a free 1,000-word sample), will be eternally grateful (hopefully!) to receive a more refined novel.
So, more about the book… this is the blurb…
